The Caribbean side of Costa Rica offers a magical combination of clear waters and intense rainforest. Usually a less visited region if you compare it to the Pacific Side, which makes it an ideal off the beaten path destination.
From Coral Reefs / white sand beaches, to incredible National Parks, the Caribbean of Costa Rica offers an amazing destination to visit. The colorful Caribbean culture welcomes you to the region, majority of Afro-Caribbean descent, giving the area unique food flavors, music and culture.
The town of Puerto Viejo is the most popular destination in the region. Offering a wide variety of small hotels, restaurants, beautiful beaches and nightlife. As well very famous for its world class wave, Salsa Brava, which welcomes experienced surfers from all around the world. Other beaches are close which are great for beginners and intermediate surfers.
Puerto Viejo is located 30min away from Limon Airport and 1 hour away from the Panama border, which access Bocas Del Toro, in Panama.
The Cahuita National Park & Gandoca Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge are the most visited protected areas in the region. Both of them with very healthy ecosystems, which provide a high possibility to the visitors to encounter wildlife.
Heading north from Puerto Viejo, we have the world famous Pacuare River, which is one of the most beautiful rivers in the world for White Water Rafting. Nested in the Caribbean jungle, this majestic river flows down from the Mountains into the ocean, creating unique river gorges thru the tropical rainforest. Overnight in one of the best Eco Lodges in the world, right next to the Pacuare River and its magical rainforest.
Combining this two destinations will provide a full jungle experience on the Caribbean of Costa Rica.
